Minnesota's 8th congressional district leads the nation in boat registrations, which is definitely something to write home about this summer.

By the numbers: More than 193,000 watercraft are registered in the northeastern district, which hugs the shore of Lake Superior, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The big picture: It's not just constituents in the 8th hitting the water in large numbers.

  • Western Minnesota's 7th district, the 6th, which includes some Twin Cities suburbs and St. Cloud, and the 3rd, a west metro district that covers Lake Minnetonka, all also made the top 10.
